Signs of Hope – A continuing series September 18, 2020

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

Gewerkschaftler suggested this recently:

I suggest this blog should have a regular (weekly) slot where people can post happenings at the personal or political level that gives them hope that we’re perhaps not going to hell in a handbasket as quickly as we thought. Or as the phlegmatic Germans put it “hope dies last”.

Any contributions this week?

Tafka GW told us that the Germans have a saying ‘Hope dies last’. I came across a saying in Irish recently – ‘Is é an dóchas sluasaid an fhir leisciúil’. Which I think translates as ‘Hope is the spade of the lazy man’. Which I interpret as meaning, a lazy fooker will hope that something will happen while a good activist will get up and do something to try to make it happen.
So there!
